From PCLinuxOS (version not recorded)
Regular mode works, but graphics-accelerated mode does not work at higher resolutions ∞
Edit the xorg.conf file and make sure the right video settings are in there. The monitor settings are ok, but the video card settings can be lifted from an original xorg.conf file. This is probably an issue with the refresh rate.
Stuck at one resolution ∞
(source not recorded)
I have this really great new monitor but it's stuck at 1024x768. It's
stuck for only one user and not for root.
As the user, I can get into the pclos control panel and everything is
set correctly. I've restarted the server but when I log in as that
particular user, the resolution is back to 1024x768. Again the pclos
control panel settings are correct, but nothing has happened in
Looking at the KDE control panel, it's stuck at 1024x768 and has no
settings to bring it higher.
xorg.conf looks like it ought to, with references to the new monitor
and nothing relating to the old one. However, the user is stuck at a
resolution not even referenced in xorg.conf. Moreover,
does nothing. It's as though this user has its own X11 settings that
it's referring to.
kde control panel > peripherals > display
- Uncheck "Allow tray application to change startup settings"
- Uncheck "Apply settings on KDE startup"
log in again
The resolution stays at the default 1920x1200. Now, when running kde control panel > peripherals > display I can see the 1920x1200 screen resolution listed.
Turning the display ∞
I wanted to know how to turn my screen. It doesn't look possible. KDE has the settings greyed out (with no explanation - bad UI!)
